Question about midnight release of games....

Post by the_hawk » Thu Oct 17, 2013 5:59 am

So I've pre-ordered Skylanders Swap Force at my local 24 hour Tescos & was wondering if anyone knew if I popped over at midnight what would the likelihood be that I'd be able to pick up a copy.

I had a quick google but couldn't see anywhere with any info & yes I could ring them & ask, but before I did I thought I'd ask on here to see if anyone knew one way or the other.

Basically, I want to see the look on my kid's face if I have it waiting for her when she wakes up.

Yeah, you're probably right. She'll just have to wait till I get home from work tomorrow!

Just traded in a load of old Wii games so we've got some credit for the inevitable onslaught on the wallet.

Is it a 24 hour store? In the supermarket I work in we sell at one minute past midnight. The local Tesco does it as well.

Oh well now I'm Tempted again! I suppose the worst that could happen is that I wouldn't be able to get it & I'd just pick up some bacon & rolls for the morning while I'm there.

Yeah it is worth a shot, only reason I could see them potentially not doing it is if the entertainment desk/section is closed at that time. Although having said that they are open for releases like GTA and Call of Duty etc unless of course they do it only for those big name games.

Try it, the game will almost certainly be there, it may be a case of somebody going to get you a copy and it could come down to how helpful the person you ask is.

Most of the Tescos near me always put the big games out at midnight, and I have seen them bring out lesser games when filling up the shelves with whatever the big release at the time is.
